31 days Post-op from Sleeve to MGB



Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone

I just wanted to give you all a quick update on my progress. I'm 31 days post-op from my VSG to MGB revision. I'm down 23 pounds since surgery & 29 pounds since pre-op diet(3 day plain yogurt &water). I think I'm making excellent progress considering I'm a revision patient. In speaking with dr. Ponce de leon before surgery, he decided that a 300cm bypass would work best for me considering my lifelong battle with Obesity and my previous WLS failure. I'm so glad that he did a longer bypass! After years of struggle, I feel like I'm finally going to reach my goal weight.

I also started back working out last week. I would like to do it first thing in the morning, but my daily bowel movements start at 6am. I make multiple trips to the restroom. It's usually over by 730am. I'm usually safe to go the gym around 9am. BM's don't hurt(no cramping), but they do stink bad and they have the potential to travel to other rooms and linger in the air is you don't contain it with some Poo pourri. Thanks to another poster, I was able to make my own poo pourri. It works just as great!

Other than that, I'm doing fine. I get lethargic from time to time, but that's normal for me. The only thing I miss is being able to gulp down Water. I truly love water. I will try to keep you all updated on my progress from time to time. I've been a part of different WLS forums for years and I hate it when people disappear after their surgery. I hope my story helps someone in their 1st surgery or Revision surgery journey.

Great news on your weight loss. Are you getting your required daily Water intake? I didn't know about the BM how long does that last, makes me nervous I have to be at work at 7am. I wish you all the best, I am having the MGB in Tijuana on 3/21.

Hi

Yes, I'm getting in my daily intake of fluids(water, coconut Water, broths etc.) My bm could last for a few hours off and on. It's not unbearable and it doesn't keep you tied to the toilet, but I wouldn't stray too far away from it either. I work in the afternoon, so it works for me because I don't have a bm while I'm at work. Your schedule could be the opposite of mine since you work days and plus everybody is different. Congratulations on your upcoming surgery! I wish you all the best as well!
